This is one of the reasons why West Side Story is considered one of the best musicals of the 20th century.

I think I’ve seen it at least 2 dozen times.

Love West Side Story! Thank you!

When my oldest sister was preparing to marry, to save money, her fiancé had to temporarily move to a smaller apartment and moved all his albums to our house, including the soundtrack to West Side Story. I was 9 going on 10 years old and played that album hundreds of times and learned the words to each and every song!

Someone who loves dance as much as you do should try to dig up a copy of Carlos Saura's Flamenco Trilogy.

Ducky, I did a flamenco weekend just recently. That is, I watched several YouTube videos on various dancers.

This one was spectacular!

One of my fondest memories is when we had our Sunday Italian dinners at my parents' home and we older girls washed the dishes (no dishwasher in that house, my mother's choice!). My cousin and I used to sing the duet "A Boy Like That", and I sang Anita's part while my younger cousin sang Maria's. Of course we hammed it up, but the younger kids laughed and enjoyed it.

I love to hate musicals. With one very notable exception. West Side Story. The only musical I ever watched multiple times.
